Greg Capullo, Forever Evil, Batman: Arkham City and George Pérez are some of the key draws in the DC Collectibles solicitations for January, with a number of the items serving as the first chance fans have had to pick them up since they appeared as San Diego Comic-Con exclusives this past summer. New Batman, Talon, Riddler and Nightwing action figures based on Capullo's artwork are slated to roll out in April and May as part of DCC's 6.75" Designer Action Figures line. Those aren't the only 6.75" scale action figures, though, with contemporary versions of Deathstorm and Bizarro coming as part of the Forever Evil line, an Arkham City Two-Face, and an Arrow Oliver Queen/Deathstroke two-pack all set to arrive in April. On the statue front, fans will be able to pick up an 8.5" Wonder Woman statue based on Pérez's iconic take on the Amazon, plus a 10" Riddler statue based on the character's Arkham City appearance.

I'm not a Batman fan. I know that's heretical, especially here at ComicsAlliance, but we preach tolerance here and we practice it too. I'm ambivalent about Batman.

Last week, DC announced that Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo would be doing an updated origin for Batman in the pages of Zero Year, starting in June's Batman #21. Considering that Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli's Batman: Year One has been the
When it was time to solicit its titles that would be on shelves next month, DC Comics announced that April would be "WTF" month. As part of the initiative, the publisher stated that each comic in April would come with a gatefold cover that, when fully revealed, would shock the reader, making it 100% WTF Certified.

This week, "Death of the Family" came to its conclusion in Batman #17, putting an exclamation point on the first big Joker story since DC's relaunch in 2011. Over the course of five issues, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo sent Batman's arch-nemesis after the Dark Knight's family of sidekicks, creating what Snyder called a "twisted love letter" from the Joker, designed to strengthen Batman by freeing him of "weaknesses" like Robin, Nightwing and even Alfred -- getting caught up in questions of secret identities and psychological scars along the way.
Now that it's all over, we spoke to Snyder about what he felt like he
DC Collectibles has a lot coming out in 2013, especially for action figure fans. We've gotten pretty extensive looks at DCC's Batman: Arkham City and Injustice: Gods Among Us lines of late, but there was still plenty of new toys to see at the DCC booth including a massive AC Solomon Grundy (with removable guts) and a nimble 3.75" IGAU Flash. On the New 52/Justice League side of things, DCC had 6" versions of Captain Cold, Black Adam, Gre
Animated GIFs have been a big part of the internet for a while, but within the last year or so GIF artists have really upped their game. Case in point: these two GIFs of recent Greg Capullo Batman covers from his and Scott Snyder's current "Death of the Family" storyline. They are both somewhat mesmerizing, in a
Out tomorrow is Batman #16, the penultimate chapter to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's "Death of the Family" storyline, featuring Batman going up against the Joker in what is already guaranteed to go down as one of the more popular Joker stories in recent memory, if not ever. Already providing a few memorable moments, this upcoming i
